This .zip file contains materials for a middle school science on desert and grassland biomes, as part of a unit on Biomes and Evolution. The unit was designed for 6th graders in NYC.
-SMARTboard .notebook lesson presentation (8 slides) including a video links.
-2 types of student note-taking graphic organizers (differentiation possible)
-2 homework assignments including articles about each biome
Presentations serve as lesson plans that guide the teacher through the entire lesson. Presentations include links to related YouTube videos to increase student engagement (I can help you use YouTube videos in your class, even if your network blocks such sites, just ask).
'Ask a question' if you need a PowerPoint file instead of what is provided, and I can probably re-upload everything with an adjusted file.
